Italian Estates: Savinelli Venezia Sandblasted (55/421) (6mm) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-33410
The year 2021 marks the 1,600th anniversary of Venice's founding in 421, and to commemorate the milestone, Savinelli produced a line of 421 serialized pipes, each united by a singular shape and finish. Dressed in a wonderfully crisp sandblast, the design is a classic straight Dublin similar to Savinelli's popular "409" shape, honoring Venice's iconic waterways with a cerulean blue acrylic band and a sterling-silver depiction of a gondola. Each Venezia Anniversary pipe comes complete with a series-exclusive tamper crafted from blue Murano glass to match the pipe's acrylic accent. Venice is renowned for its Murano glass tradition, the colorful material fashioned via a millennium-old process, and Savinelli's Venezia tampers were commissioned specifically for this series and custom crafted by Regazzi SAS — a local, Venetian workshop specializing in the art form. Furthermore, the Venezia line was officially endorsed by the Municipality of Venice, the Gondoliers Association, and the Italian Federation of Pipe Clubs, and it ranks among Savinelli's most exclusive and limited series, combining everything collectors appreciate about the Italian marque, from a tasteful shape and quality finish to an alluring presentation and Italy-inspired motif.
It should be noted, though, that this estate example does not include the original's tamper.-Truett Smith
